Sinorice Moss has been unable to stay on the field in his short career. 

Moss who was drafted in the Second Round of the 2006 Draft, has shown glimpses that he can play in the NFL; specifically against Seattle this past season when he caught two touchdowns.

Being able to look good in shorts without pads though doesn't really matter. Without full contact drills, teams are only able to practice running routes and the logistics of the playbook.

In 2007 Plaxico Burress rarely ever practiced, but yet every Sunday he performed and was able to dominate the opposing defense. The point here is simply, it doesn't matter what someone is able to do in shorts, but rather wait until Moss puts on the pads on Sunday and let's see what he is able to do.

The Giants and the Jets in 2009 will try and fair better in the last season in their stadium as opposed to how the Yankees and Mets unceremoniously closed their stadiums, missing the playoffs. Although the new stadium should be nicer, it will take a while to accumulate the many great memories like the ones the Giants had in Giants Stadium.

In order to be successful this season, the Giants need to get back to basics, which should be running the ball, sacking the QB not putting the football in harms ways and not committing penalties. If the Giants are able to do this then they can have the type of success that they had during their magical 2007 playoff run.
